The various chapters of this book contain much information on the identification of the dangerous venomous snakes in this region and attempts to review the various aspects of snakebite treatment as practised in the various countries. An ideal method of treatment is suggested and described in the last chapter. Whenever possible, distribution maps, local names, local practices and the instruction sheets enclosed with the antivenom vials are given. The information reflects the exact situation in each country and will hopefully be of help to researchers and medical personnel in planning future strategies concerning snakebite and treatment.
